Founders’ Day Musical Line-up Announced!
The full Founders’ Day schedule has been released and we are pleased to partner with RLS Productions to offer a great line-up of musical entertainment including Pat Coast, the Jennan Oaks Band, and Gideon’s Daughter.
Pat Coast is a Northwest native and a serious student of blues guitar. Though proficient in many genres, including rock and roots rock, R&B, funk, country and acoustic finger style guitar. Pat’s first love remains the blues, which he began learning at age 14 with some old T-Bone Walker and B.B. King records. Since 1992 Pat’s bands have ranged from a seven piece powerhouse band with very tasty horn arrangements down to a lean and mean power trio as well as solo work. Having released five CDs receiving air play on stations from Seattle to Kentucky and national publication reviews, Pat’s taken his act on the road as a favorite request for presenters in dozens of festivals and concerts throughout Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana.
If Smokey jazz vocals are among your play list favorites, you won’t want to miss the Jennan Oaks Band. Backed by Alex Krupla on the bass, Dustin Sikstrom on the saxophone & lead guitar, and Mike Johnstone on the drums, this band features original music by Jennan Oaks . They also play a wide variety of covers from artists like Astrud Gilberto, Melody Gardot, Madeleine Peyroux, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s, Imelda May, and more. With groovy jazz inspired tunes, the Jennan Oaks band is sure to set the tone for a romantic evening. You’ll fall in love as the joining of this dynamic group is sure to produce genre favorites for every ear. So bring a date, and come join them for a memorable experience!
Gideon’s Daughter has unearthed an almost tangible chemistry on stage with their interpretation of fusing folk, jazz, country, and hints of bluegrass into some type of gypsy musical shuttle. This unlikely trio seems to thrive on abandoning their set list when a more natural ebb and flow presents itself, and it’s during these organic moments that Gideon’s Daughter will surprise even the most reserved listener when he or she glances down to observe their feet and hands tapping to the music.
